A new space with a view over Lisbon has opened and promises to conquer the capital.
The Rossio Gastrobar, on the 7th floor of the Altis Avenida Hotel, located right in the centre of Lisbon, opens from tuesday to sunday and offers an ambitious menu that is different, with its own identity. Created with the signature of Chef João Rodrigues (Restaurante Feitoria with a Michelin star) and João Correia, resident chef of the Altis Avenida, the choice of dishes and their high quality are determined by products that are in season.
This fantastic menu is accompanied by a wide variety of cocktails prepared by the Bar Chef Flaviana Andrade and a wine list prepared by André Figuinha (sommelier of the Restaurante Feitoria), who are in charge of pairing foods and drinks. This good food and drink is complemented by a third element: music. An author’s playlist harmonises perfectly with the space, and there is a DJ three times a week, Thursdays through Saturdays.
The unhindered view over the city served as the inspiration for architects Cristina Santos e Silva and Ana Meneses Cardoso, who took advantage of the unique exposure to give prominence to the outside area, coupled with functional furnishings that are comfortable, above all else. Examples are the large armchair that ensures the best views over the Tagus River and the high table that is ideal for socialising on evenings at the close of hot afternoons.
